Hot & Cold Pack Therapy

Hot & Cold Pack Therapy

  • 2021-02-07

Are you unsure whether to use heat or cold therapy when you are injured or experiencing soreness or chronic pain? Here is an overview of how temperature can be used to aid in the healing process.


Instant Cold Packs are widely used and effective in treating pain and swelling associated with minor injuries. A wound swells as a result of fluid leakage from blood vessels; cold causes vessels to constrict, decreasing their proclivity to ooze. Swelling is reduced when blood vessels leak less fluid. Additionally, cold alleviates inflammation and muscle spasms, which are two common causes of pain.


Anyone who has ever sprained, twisted, or pulled a muscle knows how beneficial cold is. Cold packs are also effective for treating bruises, bug bites, and chronic strain injuries such as tendinitis. Cold therapy can also be beneficial for people suffering from muscle spasms, whiplash, and various forms of arthritis.


The sooner an ice pack is applied to a sprain or strain, the sooner it can begin to work on reducing pain and swelling. Ice should be applied whenever chronic problems such as low back pain or muscle spasms flare up.

Heat has been shown to increase blood flow and aid in the restoration of movement to injured tissue. Additionally, warmth can help alleviate joint stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. As with cold packs, Instant Hot Packs can help alleviate pain associated with both acute and chronic injuries, including sprains, strains, muscle spasms, whiplash, and arthritis. Doctors frequently advise patients to start with cold packs for the first day or two and then switch to heat if symptoms persist or become chronic.

The blood vessels dilate during the hot therapy treatment, increasing circulation and the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the injury. Cold therapy constricts the blood vessels, reducing circulation and allowing the injured area to absorb the nutrient-rich blood before it leaves the area. In summary, hot and cold therapy work in tandem to aid in recovery.
